Today on a bonus-length YarnCraft, we talk about adjusting your project. Whether you’re making a larger or smaller scarf or afghan, lengthening your sleeves, or making a bigger hat, we have tips on what you need to consider and how you can make those changes.

Articles/blog posts mentioned include:

Zontee also interviews Lisa Shroyer, editor of cheap viagra from canada and author of the new book, Knitting Plus. Lisa shares 5 tips on making flattering plus-size sweaters.

Liz & Zontee also answer a listener question on making great buttonholes and button bands.

Then on Stash This: Ideas for Your Crafting Life, we share an interview with designer and author Nicky Epstein, recorded in front of a live audience at Vogue Knitting Live back in January. She shares some of the great ideas for using knit/crochet blocks from her latest book Knitting Block by Block.

Join us again in two weeks, when we discuss how yarns are developed here at Lion Brand, PLUS we interview designer Candace Eisner Strick, whose new book features a new way to construct socks. As always, we want to hear from you — what you’re working on, your questions, and your comments. Post a message on the blog or email us at yarncraft [at] lionbrand [dot] com! You can also call in and leave a message at 774-452-YARN–that’s 774-452-9276.
